In 2010, Sonny Smith (Sonny & The Sunsets) invited 100 artists to design album covers for 100 fictional bands, while Smith recorded the music for these imagined records.

100 Records Vol. 3 is the third (and final) installment to be officially released from this ambitious project.

Reviews

It's one thing to come up with a concept record. It's another to actually execute it in a way that others 
will want to hear it.

Pop Candy

...each number is defined by Smith’s passion and dedication and free-spirited sense of musical exploration.

Consequence of Sound

…some legitimately catchy reggae and soul songs…(Smith's) final 100 Records collection is much stronger than it has any right to be.
